Now is the time to catch up on missed medical careApr 7, 2022
CEO, Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center
It’s a milestone we never thought we would reach, but now that the COVID-19 pandemic has passed the 2-year mark, you may have found yourself in a situation where you put your health on the back burner. Many people have delayed care or ignored signs and symptoms of something more serious that needs to be checked. The CDC says that because of concerns about COVID-19, an estimated 41% of adults have delayed or avoided medical care including urgent or emergency care (12%) and routine care (32%). Here in our community, the COVID-19 positivity rate is finally down to a manageable level, so now is the time to get out and seek care for any new, chronic, or emergent conditions that you or a member of your family may have developed.
Time is always a big factor when it comes to improving outcomes in medicine. In the event of a true medical emergency, we encourage you to seek care immediately. Our hospital is safe, and while emergencies are unpredictable, delays in care can be downright traumatic. No one expects to visit an emergency room, but if you need to go, you want high-quality, attentive treatment in a comfortable environment. That is what you will find at the emergency room at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center. Our physicians and nurses pride themselves on providing outstanding patient experiences, so you know you will get some of the best treatment possible from people who truly care. Unless your condition is life-threatening, schedule a visit online to reduce your wait time.
We have been busy! Next time you visit us, you might notice something new. We are excited about the recent upgrades and investments we have made in new technology. As a leader in cardiac care, we recently upgraded our cardiac catheterization facilities and advanced operating room technologies for cardiac and vascular surgery. These expanded offerings will enhance the community’s access to lifesaving care.
At Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center, our focus is on being able to help you no matter the reason for your visit. In addition to the medical services we offer, we also have comprehensive diagnostic specialty services to be able to diagnose what might be troubling you quickly and precisely. Don’t delay any longer — make your health a priority today!
